The World is Very Small
JSfo Such Thing as a Nation   Living
for Itself
Our minds have gone abroad. Our
politics has suddenly become internationalized. Wc arc obliged to
think in bi.er units. The issues of Belgium and Alsace-Lorraine are. clearer to us than much of our state politics, and the queer part is that they
arc actually more important to us.
We see that there is no such thing
as a nation living for itself. The
world is so knit together that an injury to one is an injury to us all.
When, owing to unjust conditions, a
group of English miners precipitates
a serious political crisis in England.
the wages and living conditions of
those miners have a vital effect on
our own affairs. The decisions of
the radical soldiers' and workmen's
deputies in Russia are read wilh deep
concern in Boston and San Francisco. They are no mere theoretical
babble now, but realities of hope or
dread. How small the world has
grown!���From  tlie Boston  Globe.
A Race of Cripples
Only  One American  Out   of   Every
Five Is Considered Sound
The military medical authorities
havc examined our citizens by the
thousands. The results of this examination in many instances havc
been  as   follows:
Out of every live  examined, one. is
considered  sound.      The  other    four
' are  cripples.    Some  part  of  their in-
I ternal   organisms     is affected.      The
heart,  stomach,    lungs,    kidneys    or
some other vital organ or function is
! crippled.
For generations the blind have
been  leading the  blind.
The physical body is of no spec.a
importance. The house iu whieh wc
live needs no special attention. It
"just grows." No matter how ditty
it may be. So long as the. dirt does
not show on the surface, there is no
occasion for complaint or criticism.
That has been our attitude.
!      Freedom of the Seat

j It would bc just as rational to in-

j dom of the. seas. The seas are free
! in times of peace. To have freedom
I lor the ocean thoroughfares as a
condition of peace would imply that
some nation wanted to use the ocean
for an ulterior purpose during the
war. There will bc freedom that
(iennany wants. if the German
military power, including its navy, is
not destroyed, then the allies will be
forced to control the seas in. their
own defense. The very talk of freedom of the seas shows that there
can be no peace that is worth while

that has been destroyed there will bc
no question of the freedom of the.

New Military Hospital
Six Hundred Bed Convalescent Hospital to Be Erected in
Announcement is made by the military hospitals commission that il
will erect a six hundred bed convcl-
c&ccnt hospital on property adjacent
to the MacDonald College site at
Stc. Anne de Bellevuc, Montreal.
McGill University will be associated
with the commission in the project.
An order-in-cotincil ratifying the
transaction has been passed.
Construction will begin at once
and the institution will be ready for
occupation by the now year. The
plan permits au expansion to 900
beds, if necessary.
The decision to erect an institution
of this large size vva.s prompted by
the many changes which have taken
place in the character of the treatment accorded the returned soldiers.
Much of this treatment requires
highly trained specialists of great
ability and the scarcity of men of
this calibre together with the great
expense of duplicating costly equipment has necessitated concentrating
the future work of the military hospitals commission in such large in-
The Drummond street hospital
will now be used as an active treatment hospital for the Montreal area
and convalescents will be treated at
Stc. Anne.
One of the great merits of the Stc.
Aune site is the proximity of MacDonald college with its splendid
facilities for vocational training. It
is a part of the agreement thai the
ervice of the college r.taft will be
the coinnit.ision in. -this
important branch.
The new institution Will, consist of
4 a central administration bloc'.- with
j-fotir outlying, two-story wings each
i containing 150 beds. Smaller wings
in close contact will contain equipment of the latest type for the administration of special treatments
such as the various types of electric
treatment, continuous, bath's, whirl-
poor baths, nozzle baths, needle
baths aud arm and leg baths, vapor
baths, etc. Corrective apparatus for
functional training and . re-education
of impaired mental and physical faculties will be installed. . There will
be special buildings for the accommodation of doctors, nurses, orderlies, etc., for vocational training, for
recreation and amusements. A power plant is to bc part of the scheme
also. The kitchen and dining room
are to the rear connected to the main
bi'ildiug by corridors. The kitchen
.���.ill be equipped with the latest type
of steam cookers, serving tables, etc.
und a modern refrigerating plant will
bc installed.
The building will be of the type
of construction adopted by the mili-
t.-ry hospitals commission for its
new work, being fire-proof and durable, although  not expensive.
Walks Between   Buildings
Reduces the Amount of Dirt Carried
Into the  House
Walks between buildings adds a
good deal to the ease and comfort
with which the chores can be done
on the farm and they also reduce the
amount of dirt that is carried into
the house. Cement concrete is one
of the best materials for making
walks. When it is properly made
with the right amount of sand and
gravel of good quality the construction is permanent.
In making the walks excavate
eight to ten inches deep and fill in
with four to six inches of cinders or
similar material, well tamped to
make a good base and ou top of this
place three and a half inches of concrete tamped in place and a top coat
of one-half inch of cement mortar
mixed in the proportions one cement
to two sand. The gravel for concrete should be well graded in sizes
from one-quarter to one inch, and
for this material the proportions may
well be one cement, three sand, six
gravel. Poorer materials should
have a richer mixture. The top coat
should be troweled to drive it into
the concrete base, but not necessarily to make it slick.
A "rough" walk may be advisable,
in which case a little finer grave!
may bc used in the concrete and the
full four inches made of this material.���A gr. l��x. Dent, N.D. Agr. College.
Maude Can Fight
Whenever   He   Strikes,   He   Strikes
Like a Thunderbolt
This is a victory won by strategy,
dash and determination, a victory of
the old-fashioned kind of fighting, a
victory won in Maude's own way.
Followed by anxiety rather than
hope, this general set out ou his
campaign in a region sinister with
repeated disaster to the British arms;
an ill-omened region. The hopes
that followed his forerunners, but
did not follow him, he has more than
fulfilled on every occasion. He has
met with no defeats, only with victories, victories won with that satisfying thoroughness which leaves
nothing to bc desired. His plans
seem to be perfect and are always
carried out to the letter. Whenever
he strikes, he strikes like a thunderbolt. This accomplishment of his,
the capture of an enemy army, has
no precedent on the side of the allies since the war began; ancl in the
fact that it was wron by sheer strategy, combined with the vigor of action that is always his, it has no precedent on cither side. Maude is reminiscent of Wolfe.���New York Times.
The Standardized Ship
Enforcing of {Civilized Standards for
"._    Housing of Seamen
It is' not only the speed with which
it is being turned out from the yards
that marks the standardized ship, but
the increased speed with which it can
���be worked. The feature of the gen-
erar- arrangements is the very large
hatchways which enormously facilitate the loading and unloading of
cargo. Supplemented y improved
port facilities, such as Lloyd George
emphasized in his recent analysis of
the shipping problem, it is plain that
every ton of shipning will account
for a proportion of cargo unattainable before the war. Nor has the
human factor been neglected. The
principle that the well-being of the
worker operates for increased output has been adopted in the construction of seamen's quarters on the
new ships. The old tradition that
the deep sea sailor may live anyhow
and anywhere has been discarded.
Wc read of two-men cabins for the
accommodations of the crew, messing arrangements separated from
sleeping quarters, a smoking room
for the men���and steam heat! One
of the permanent results of the war
will be this ..enforcement of civilized
standards for the housing of the j
workers, whether on sea or land, on .
the cargo carriers or around the fac
tory chimneys and the mine pits.���

right and become active and strong.
-Many who began "patching" months
ago arc. as'ill'now as on the day
they began vainly tinkering with
common drugs. Every ailing man
and woman should remember that the
ills of debility, nerve exhaustion, indigestion, sleeplessness, neuralgia,
and depression come from a faulty

other causes havc impoverished the
blood and left the life-stream impure.

Going Back on the Kaiser
German   People    Gradually    Losing
Faith in the War Lord
In the September number of the
Nineteenth Century there is an interesting article by Prof. F. Sefton
Delmer. He, Australian born, had
lived for tw-cnly years past in Germany, during the latter part of the
time being a professor in the.Uni-
vcrsity"~of Berlin. From the outbreak of the war until May of this
year, hc was a civil, prisoner in Berlin. He was able, however, to go
about tinder restrictions, and to sec
something of his university friends.
What he writes of their change of
opinion  is  instructive.    He declares:
"Before the war the intellectual
classes of Germany were almost to a
man on the side of the Kaiser. But
many of these people, who in August, 1914, lauded their ruler to the
skies as a new Charlemagne, now
shrug their shoulders at him and his
house. They put the disaster which
has come over thcin in consequence
of this war, and the still worse disasters 'with: which they sec themselves threatened in the near future,
down to the Kaiser's clumsy diplomatic preparation qi the war, and
his autocratic system. His everlasting pose, his. wish to delude ...himself and them into the belief that he
An Investigator Says   It   Is   Thalg,
Salg, or Talc, Meaning Ice
or Snow
In an editorial discussion of the
oldest written word The Interstate
Medical Journal declares it to bc a
word meaning ice or snow, which in
various places takes the sound of
thalg, salg, and talc. Here is the
writer's argument:
"How many, if asked what is the
oldest written word found in an extant document and still in use���not, _
mark you, the oldest root���could an- ' S
swer correctly? And yet the word is
one appearing frequently in our advertising columns, and it is the name
of a therapeutic agent and toilet article in common use.
"In the office copies of the letters
and instructions given to the envoys
of the heretic king of Egypt, Akhen-
aton, (Amenaphis IV.) in_ the fourteenth century, B.C., which office
copies were discovered at Tel-cl-
Amarana, there occurs a passage
which was read as follows: 'We hope
that the sale will not interfere with
"It was- taken for granted that
'sale' was the name -of���some warlike
tribe in the hills of northern Syria;
but it was remarkable that a tribe,
powerful enough to brave the wrath
of such great monarchs as those between whom this correspondence was
passing, should not be mentioned in
any other of the voluminous of
those times.
"Pondering this, a philologist remembered that s, th, and t were interchangeable, especially in Semitic
languages. For example, the name
that we, imitating the northern Semitic races and the Turks, call Osman,
is spelled and in southern Arabia is
pronounced Othman, while the empire of Osmon is known to Europeans as the Ottoman empire. Now,
there exists in the Semitic languages
a word for ice or snow which, in
various places, takes the sound of
thalg, salg, and talc.
"The mystery was thus cleared up.
The envoys had to pass the mountains of northern Syria in winter,
and their august master expressed a
hope that the ice or snow would not
interfere with their passage. The
Egyptians, having no acquaintance
with ice or show, would naturally
borrow the name from their northern neighbors.
"When the Arabs desired to give
a name to the foliaceous magnesium
silicate, they chose one.which suggested its resemblance to ice, and
they called  it talc."

In every portion of Manitoba

Irrigation Period Extended

The steps being taken in Western
Canada to increase food production
manifest themselves in many ways.
Among the latest is a request made
by the Lethbridge board of trade to
the Canadian Pacific railway that the
company should continue to flow irrigation water in the ditches beyond
the usual time this fall to cnab'e
farmers to fall-irrigate their lands
for the purpose of increasing the
crops of 1918. Similar representations have been made by settlers- in
the eastern section of the Canadian
Pacific railway irrigation block. In
both cases the company has shown
its' desire to co-operate with the farmers in increasing production by-
agreeing to the request that water
should be supplied through the
ditches after September 30, which is
officially the end of the irrigation

���from three to six pence a day \vill

daily for privates and ten pence for
sergeants is abolished.
The navy increase is about the
same rate of pay, and the allowances
to the army and navy now amount
to 225,000,000 pounds yearly. The
increases involve 50,000,000 pounds
for the first year.

The Future of Germany
Will Suffer from an Economic   and
Social Boycott
Whether victorious or defeated,
Germany is likely to suffer for many
years from a social and economic
boycott, not necessarily inspired by
any government, but the voluntary
act of thousands of individuals with
whom the feeling of resentment will
be keen and lasting. It is piobable
that it will be many years before
any Frenchman or Briton will, without urgent necessity, have business
relations with Germans. Travel between the countries will bc paralyzed
for few Frenchmen or Britons will
enter Germany and still fewer Germans will be welcomed in France
or Great Britain.
We hardly realize the intensity of
feeling which the sufferings and barbarities of this war have brought
about. The. conclusion seems reasonable that the material prosperity of
Germany will suffer immeasurably
for years to come from this economic
and social boycott, and it is unlikely
that when it is further recognized
that much of the resentment of the
world would disappear if Germany
were to transform its autocratic
monarchy into a republic or limited
monarchy by dethroning the Hohcn-
zollern dynasty, that the business interests of Germany will find opportunity to suggest in no unmeaning
way that, as Germany sacrificed itself for the prestige of the kaiser, the
time has come when the kaiser could
profitably sacrifice his crown for the
benefit of the German people?���

Seager Wheeler of Rosthem Brings
Fame to Western Canada
Mr. Seager Wheeler of Rosthcrn,
Saskatchewan, at the International
Dry Farming Congress at Peoria,
Illinois, took first honors in the display m wheat, barley, brome grass
and rye grass. He also took the
sweepstakes for the best supply of
potatoes and the first prize for field
peas. Mr. Wheeler has risen to
something like national fame
through his achievements as an agriculturalist. He is a fine type of the
man who_ applies, business faculty to
the growing of grain, as some others
of his kind do the raising of fruit
and breeding of livestock. Their
achievements havc been the best advertisements the western country has
secured; and this year these havc
been especially noteworthy. At the
Peoria gathering which attracts exhibits from all the Americas, Mr. S.
Larcombe of Birtlc, Manitoba got
the sweepstakes award for wheat,
the first, second and third prizes for
wheat, with the sweepstakes for oats
and rye going to others from the
same province.. Other trophies were
also won by representatives of Manitoba and Saskatchewan, whose fame
as farming countries of great capacity will be more widely spread in
consequence. In their earlier days,
as in the earlier days of Quebec and
Ontario, and of. New York and other
eastern states, the strong new soil
produced great crops of. grain almost
without care.; It took years to exhaust it; and when it was exhausted
it took years more to .restore it to
fertility. The art has been learned,
however, and fanning, on the continent js becoming work for strong
thinking men, such as it has long
been in Germany, France, the Scandinavian countries and Great Britain, whose : crops on lands cultivated

j lift that means .much for their business generally ami for the country.���

Ate Onions Like Apples
Lady Shacklcton gives the interesting information that the members
of her husband's expedition, found
the greatest benefit from eating raw
onions like apples. The ironical
title of "violets" conferred on them
for an obvious reason, explains why
onions ate banned, but their nutritive and tonic value, particularly. in
cold conditions, is beyond question.
In the Peninsula, laborers in the
fields take with them a Spanish onion, which is the pick of the family,
just as in this country they would a
lump of cheese, and the advantage
scientifically is, we believe, on the
side of the onion. Before the war,
Breton fishermen, in their blue jerseys, carrying their strings of onions,
were a familiar sight every season in

Is Your Chimney Safe?
Defective Chimney >a Common Cause
of Fires
Defective chimneys arc the greatest single source of fires. The investigation being conducted by the
commission of conservation discloses
the fact that, for the year 1916, of
the places reporting, no less than 640
fires were due to faulty chimneys.
This is exclusive of fires resulting
from dangerous stovepipes or chimney sparks.
Before winter weather necessitates
pressure upon the heating apparatus,
the householder should carefully inspect all chimneys, as well as stove
and furnace pipes, and havc them
put in good condition. Rarely, if
ever, does the ocupant of a house
make an examination of the chimney where it passes through the attic. Yet, this portion of the building is probably the source of the
great majority of fires which start
from defective chimneys. Changes
in weather conditions and vibration
have a deleterious effect upon the
mortar in the brickwork, causing it
to disintegrate and leaving openings
through which sparks may readily

Physical Improvement Is Altogether
in the Hands of the Individual
The physical improvement of the
people is a question very much to
the fore in these days?-"" Health conventions, all over the land, are being
held and our foremost medical men
are discussing the problem of disease
prevention with scientific thoroughness. The statement is freely made
that a large percentage of the ordinary death rate iu modern communities is avoidable. A reasonable care
about sensible living -would increase
the average human life, authorities
state, by not less than fifteen years
within a generation.
Dr. Hanen Emerson, health commissioner of New York, stated to a
clergyman of his acquaintance:
"In the conservation of human life
men of science have gone about as
far as we can get. We have made
the facts known; we have shown
people what shortens their lives and
what will lengthen them. The masses pretty generally know the truth
nowadays about the diseases that cut
men off before they have lived out
a normal term of life���know how
those diseases are contracted and
know how they can be avoided. What
is left is a moral question���not a
scientific question at all. It is the
question whether itien will do as
well as they know. Today they see
clearly the results ahead if they follow disastrous habits, and yet they
keep on with those habits just the
same. What they need is not more
knowledge or more warnings. What
they need is character, backbone,
will power���the qualities that carry
knowledge into practice. The extension of men's term of natural life
lies with the church today much
more than it does with the medical
profession. It is up to the church to
take hold and put into men something that will make them willing
and able to live as they know they
ought to live."���J. H. Hazlewood,

Good Work of the U.S. Destroyers
in the Forbidden Zone
For military reasons the facts cannot be detailed, but it may be said
that the United States destroyers are >
very active in the protection of ves-1
sels in  Germany's "forbidden zone," j
and that the strain  on  officers    and j
men is heavy.    They are exposed to ;
danger from the  enemy    and    from j
rough weather.    "Four days on and j
four days  off"  for  officers and men
on the destroyers and  patrols hunting U-boats on the other side means
that the navy is doing its full share
of  hard  work;   for  "four  days    on"
spells for them no  rest, little  sleep,
hard work and hardship.   The crews
come into port utterly exhausted, but
after four    days    ashore    go    back,
prepared  for another  turn  with  the

Care of Swine
Comfortable Hogs Always Make the
Best Gains
Farm animals must be comfortable
in order that they do as well as possible. This is especially true of swine,
since no farm animal suffers as much
from extremes of heat and cold as
the hog. Most men prefer to feed
hogs in the spring and fall, for they
say -the hogs gain more at these
times on the same feed than during
summer and winter. This is perhaps
in a large measure true only because
they arc more comfortable.
L. A. Weaver, of the University of
Missouri college of agriculture, mentions some of the things which may
be done to make fattening hogs
1. Provide adequate shade. If the
hog lot does not contain plenty of
natural shade, then artificial shade
should be supplied. Hog cots, made
so as to have at least one removable
side, would be good to use at this
time, or shade may be made by setting four ordinary fence posts so
that they may be covered with
planks or canvas.
2. Provide plenty of pure drinking
water. This may be cheaply and satisfactorily done with a barrel watcrcr
if an adequate supply cannot be had
otherwise. Two or three pounds of
water is stored in the animal's body
for every pound of muscle added,
hence the necessity and economy of
furnishing plenty of water to drink.
Most feeders realize the importance
of supplying plenty of drinking water, but it oftentimes is an_ easy thing
to neglect. Some think if they an.
feeding slop that enough water is
supplied. The water in the slop, of
course helps to supply the water requirements, but the hogs should have
access to additional water.
3. Keep pool or wallows clean.
Clean pools or wallows keep the hogs
comfortable, _ permitting -rapid and
economic gains. This does not mean
however, that any kind of a wallow
is good, for water which is stagnant
and filthy  may keep  the  hogs  cool,
'but'the evil results  from unsanitary
j conditions may more than    overbal-
: ancc the good derived from the protection from heat.
4. Keep hogs free from lice by dipping, spraying or by putting, hog dip
in wallows.
5. Keep sleeping quarters free from
! dust, which irritates bronchial  tubes,
lungs and other organs. This may be.
done by spraying with crude oil. No
hog can thrive if it is continually
coughing and wheezing.

Is a Lazy Man a Sick Man?
The Writer Thinks That Laziness Is
a Disease
Laziness is one of the reasons why
many men fail. This docs not mean
that industry always means success.
Energy may be misdirected. There
are plenty of hard-working drudges
���men who toil long hours every '
day, six or seven days each week |
and fifty-two weeks each year���who
are still scarcely able to keep the
v/olf from the door. It is true that
some of these men would do much
better if they did more thinking and
less hard work. Industry is not everything. And yet, given the other
necessary factors that make for success, it is the industrious man who
will win the big prizes of life. The
loafer has not the least chance iu the
Now there are two distinct general
causes of laziness. Or we might say
there are two kinds of laziness���
mental and physical. In either case,
the condition can be cured. In the
average loafer we probably find both
In the one case it is due purely to
mental inaction, the stagnating, time
wasting, half-dead kind of attitude.
In the other case, it is due to a lack
of energy���that tired feeling. You
cannot get much speed without
plenty of steam. You cannot get up
much steam without plenty of coal
and a perfectly working furnace.
Similarly in your own case, the internal "works" must be sound and
working properly. Of the two I believe that the physical factor is in
the average case the most important
to consider.
That tried feeling���do you know
what it means?
It means that you are sick���out of
No man who is right ever feels
lazy. No one enjoying superior
health can be lazy. Real health
means energy, vitality, driving force.
And it is expressed in activity���of
body and mind. A healthy man
simply cannot loaf. Do you get the
significance of this?
Did you ever take notice of a
healthy, vigorous child���how he is
continually "at something," incessantly on the go, doing something,
until the sandman comes?
Why not you? You could not
help doing something, you could not
help pushing ahead with your plans,
purposes, ambitions, desires, if yoa
had the energy that is an inseparable
part of normal health. Real health.
You simply could not avoid accomplishing results if you had this energy.���From "Why You are Lazy" by

Died From Exhaustion
Up the Main Kettle river 35
miles from Westbridge, Jack
Christian, accompanied by Guy
LeEoy Lockhart, aged 13, went
out on a hunting trip. The
weather was bad, snowing a good
part of the time, and the hunters
got lost. They wandered for nearly two days, and during this time
the young lad got sick from travelling and want of food. As they
came in sight of a cabin which belonged to Mr. Schenck, the boy
was in very bad shape, Mr. Christian was unable to do any with
him, so he left him and went to
the cabin to see what he could get.
On his return he found the boy
suffering from cratnps in the
r-tomach, and about ten minutes
later he passed away. The burial
took place close to to the boys
home, whose parents own a ranch
iu that section.
This is a very sad affair, but not
the first to occur in this part of the
Boundary, and it is on the opinion
of the coroner that parents should
use more discretion in allowing
"their children of such tender age

Shows Decline
The 1017 copper output of Granby ConsoUdiated Mining, Smelting
&- Power company will fall short
by over 5,000,000 pounds in comparison with the preceding 12
months, owing chiefly to curtailment at the original property at
Grand Forks, eaya a Boston report. When the miners of the
Crow's Nest Pass Coal company
went on strike last spring, they tied
tip the Grand Forks plant for lack
of fuel, and since resumption the
smelter at that point has never run
at fall capacity. In addition to
this condition, lower grade of ore
encountered also played its part in
reducing production.
Assuming an average cost of production of 14 cents a pound,
Granby could, on an output of 40,-

Over The Top"
Nature has made British Columbia rich and
beautiful The waters that run through and
surround itf are teeming with edible fish, include
ing clams. Its lofty sky ���scraping mountains are
filled with almost every known mineral, while
the yellow power of earth'gold, it hides amid the
sands of many a creek. Its fertile valleys and
hillsides contain millions of acres that are doing
nothing to go "OVER THE TOP/' for lack of
cultivation,. Its forests of gigantic trees are the
envy of the world* The scenery is grandly
magnificient. while the climate contains the ozone
that puts pep into the human frame, filling it with
life, health and energy.
With all these advantages this Province
should have millions of happy people within \ its
confines, and yet it has a scant 40,000* Then
sings the little bird in the tree, "What's The
Matter With B, C/V
Nothing, except that it is like many a
business man. It does not advertise, or does
not know how. Turn on the ^bright light of
effective and suggestive advertising, until all
the world thinks and talks about this glorious
B. C, the brightest gem in the cluster of
Canada's provincial diamonds. Get a move
on, go over the top, waving your flag and
blowing your cornet in front of the millions
that have not yet been "swiped" by the red
hand of Mars.
In the meantime do not fall to boost your
own business by dropping a soul-touching,
money getting ad into Greenwood's Leading
Excitement. Come across with enthusiasm
and plenty of printer's ink, and the public
will shell you with dollars, until you grow
tired picking them up. If you are wise, you
will always advertise, in
and get your job printing at the same office.
